Homeopathic Medicines for H.Pylori Infection

H. pylori is a bacterium named Helicobacter pylori that causes stomach infection. In most cases, H. pylori remains in the body without causing any illness with the carrier being unaware of its presence. Only in 20 per cent persons, it causes gastric issues and symptoms. Two gastric conditions that it can cause are gastritis (stomach inflammation) and peptic ulcers (open sores in the lining of the stomach or the initial part of the intestine called duodenum). Besides these, H. pylori infection is also a risk factor for stomach cancer. The infection is contracted through contaminated food and water. It is transmitted through direct contact with vomit, saliva and other body fluids of an infected person. H. pylori bacteria penetrates the lining of stomach and duodenum and starts multiplying. It secretes Urease enzyme which converts urea to ammonia. Ammonia helps this bacteria to survive in the stomach acid. With its multiplication, the lining of stomach and duodenum starts getting damaged resulting in gastritis or peptic ulcer.

How does H. Pylori infection spread?

The mode of spread of H. pylori is still not fully clear. However, it is believed to spread by:

1. Direct contact with saliva, stool or vomit of infected person

2. Consuming contaminated food or water

Risk factors

This infection is usually contracted during childhood. Following factors increases the risk:

1. Unavailability of clean water

2. Living in crowded environment and living with someone having this infection

3. Living in a developing country as sanitary conditions are unhygienic


H. pylori infection may lead to gastritis and peptic ulcers.

A) The complications mainly related to peptic ulcers as follows:

1. Internal bleeding presenting as bloody/ black stool or bloody/ black vomit

2. Perforation (hole) in stomach wall. It increases chance of serious infection in abdominal cavity called peritonitis

3. Obstruction blocking food passage in digestive tract

B) Another complication is stomach cancer: H.pylori increases risk of stomach cancer (mainly adenocarcinoma)


In cases suspected of H.pylori infection, following tests are suggested to confirm diagnosis

1. Breath test (Urea breath test): In this test, the sufferer exhales in a bag after drinking a liquid containing harmless carbon molecules. In case H. pylori bacteria is present, carbon is released when the swallowed liquid gets in contact with H.pylori in stomach. When sufferer exhales in the bag, a device is used to check for carbon molecules emitted via breath.

2. Stool test

3. a) Stool antigen test: It is a common test to check for presence of antigens linked with H. pylori in stool

b) Stool PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test: It can find H. pylori infection in stool and can also find strains that are resistant to antibiotics but it is an expensive test.

4. Upper endoscopy:  In this test, a tube with a camera is inserted into the stomach via mouth and a tissue sample (biopsy) is taken to detect H.pylori infection.

  2. Ella Johnson says:

    I’m 71 years old and have lived a healthy life until 2019 when my stress level magnified to an all time high. At the time I was a landlord for about 15 years. In 2019, My lab results showed my white blood cout high 853, but nothing was done for me. I was told that I was fine.
    Since then I have suffered with burning pain in the area between my breast and top if my abdomen. When i eat about every 2 – 3 hours it seems to be fine. I have been stool samples since I was 50 years old and nothing has been found. In September a mean dusgruntal doctor gave me the breath test, she said it was posituve and complaibed to my insurance company. My insurance company sent a doctor to my home to conduct stool sample, bloodwork and other tests, but found nothing. I feel better because i changed my diet, but I would like to get well again. I use a few homeopathics, but I am trying to find a local physician. Years ago they were plentiful. HELP ME IF YOU CAN. ELLA
